Mindbender talent.

Priest
Hey all,

Was looking over this talent. Normal shadowfiend states you receive 3% mana back when it attacks. Mindbender states it is more effective at generating mana, when i took this talent to see it. It states it returns 1.46% mana on attacks.

How is this more effective?

Yes I understand it only has a 1 minute cool down but that has nothing to do with being more effective.
It's more effective in the sense that it gives you more mana over time (on fights more than two minutes in length).
Both pets attack 10 times over their duration assuming they stay on-target.

Mindbender deals 80% (I think) damage per swing (relative to Shadowfiend) and returns 1.46% mana, with a 1 minute cooldown.

Therefore, Mindbender deals 240% of Shadowfiend's damage, and returns 13.8% more mana over the same amount of time (3 minutes).

Wrong, mindbender attacks 11 times and shadowfiend attacks 9 times.
Ok, so after reading this I decided to try it out.
Basicaly what Consite says: The fight has to be over two minutes to be worth it.

Thanks for the responces. I still think the talent is misleading . It does not state more effective in the long run..just more effective. Ya I'm a pain.

And would someone please fix mind sear...
